    What if you found a way to send something back in time? But not millions of years back, to the age of the dinosaur. Not even a minute back. What if you could send something back only a fraction of a second? Would this be of any use? You wouldn't have nearly enough time to right a wrong, change an event, or win a lottery. Nathan Wexler is a brilliant physicist who thinks he's found a way to send matter a split second back into the past.

    For the last 50 years, I have been intrigued by the concept of wisdom. As a young boy I remember reading these words of Solomon about wisdom, "She is more precious than jewels and nothing you desire compares with her." (Proverbs 3:15) The fact that nothing in this life compares with wisdom grabbed my attention; therefore, I have been on a lifelong search to understand and to acquire it. Wisdom enables us to distinguish between those ideas in life that are true and those that are false.

    The Apostle Paul was kind of a jerk. He was arrogant and stubborn. He called his opponents derogatory, racist names. He legitimized slavery and silenced women. He was a moralistic, homophobic killjoy who imposed his narrow religious views on others. Or was he? Randolph Richards and Brandon O'Brien explore the complicated persona and teachings of the Apostle Paul. Unpacking his personal history and cultural context, they show how Paul both offended Roman perspectives and scandalized Jewish sensibilities.
